Elton Here - Elton John (1970)
Limited Purple Vinyl Double LP
Record Store Day, 2020
Very limited purple vinyl double LP pressing of the classic self-titled Elton John album, originally released as a single album in 1970 and reissued as a double album as part of this year's Record Store Day; ten tracks on the original album including Your Song, Take Me To The Pilot and Border Song; comes with a 12-track bonus album full of rare and unreleased tracks; LPs made in Germany; this would make a great addition to any collection!
Brand New / Factory Sealed / Unopened / Mint
NB: The condition grades shown above are based on Record Collector's grades. There are 5 grades: Near Mint (used but in stunning 'nearly new' condition); EX+ (used but with a bare minimum of wear); EX (item may have some light marks but still in a desirable condition); VG+ (has a few marks but only cosmetic, item plays perfectly); and VG (may have minor issues which I will specifically refer to); I don't sell anything below VG (and Mint doesn't exist). Unlike a lot of people on eBay, I am very scrupulous about my grading, so if ever you are less than satisfied with the condition of an item, please do contact me.
SPECIALIST IN EARLY CD PRESSINGS:
As Tillysmusic, I've been an eBay seller for many years, and specialise in early/1980s CD pressings. If anybody tells you that early CDs were badly mastered and sound bad, don't believe them! Although there are exceptions, the vast majority of 1980s CD pressings sound wonderful, especially West German and Japanese pressings from between 1982 and 1988. Pressings from this era tend to have a much warmer 'natural' sound not unlike how you remember the vinyl original, as opposed to more modern reissues which are remixed for iPods with bass boost and added compression. Remember, not all early pressings are mega-rare or valuable, but are nearly always worth checking out.
PS: I also endeavour to sell my early CDs with their original heavy plastic cases, which I believe is an important part of the whole package; this means that some of these old cases will come with scuffing or small cracks, but I will always describe any noticeable problems.
